The Dwight Howard saga as it related to his decision to ultimately choose the Rockets over the Lakers in free agency has been well-chronicled and it feels like we’ve heard just about all of the details surrounding the reasons for his departure. In short Howard didn’t like the way he was being utilized in Mike D’Antoni’s offense and his personality couldn’t have been more opposite to that of Kobe Bryant which (along with all of the losing) made his time in Los Angeles extremely miserable. But if all of that somehow wasn’t clear by now we have yet another report that Howard may have considered re-upping with the Lakers had they been ready to make the franchise his from day one — by removing those two components that made his time there so unpleasant.
